Captain Syrup by UberMan5000 Captain Syrup by UberMan5000
Arrrr! It's Captain Syrup, leader of the Black Sugar Pirates, perennial nemesis of the wily and wicked Wario, and most buxom of the many Nintendo lasses! Whatever she wants, she takes it, even if it's from the greediest little man in all the land! And she looks ravishing while doing it!

She's a fun Nintendo villain that is oft-overlooked, and is one of the later examples of a gender-shocker. You go through the whole game knowing that you're fighting "Captain Syrup", then you get to the end, and find out he's a she?! Even with Nintendo's main damsel being a frilly princess that gets captured constantly, they still pushed the envelope of gender equality! I felt like drawing her because she's so much fun (and because of, well... this: [link] :giggle:)

Drawn in Corel Painter 11, with gouache paints. It's rapidly becoming my favourite drawing program, even with its little quirks. Hope you like!

Wouldn't it be great if she was in SSB4 and you could use Wario to KO her again and again and again and again. She is so hard in Wario Land 2.

Shiver me timbers, indeed. But seriously, it's a fun, detailed picture that expresses our comely Captain's potent mix of hot sauce and cool dressing. I'd have to agree with your description comments; she should be used more often. Nintendo doesn't have a lot of bad girls in general and Syrup is the ONLY one in Mario's world that I'm aware of.

Oh, and that gender reveal thing at the end of her first appearance? Made sense when I read she (and Wario) were created by Gunpei Yokoi, creator of Metroid/Samus Aran. Hmm...Samus vs. Syrup!! LOL
